Nice wooeden interior, beer seems to be mostly sorted by producer. A lot of glassware available as well. Good selection of Belgian beers, including some of the more modern/less classic brewers like Alvinne, De Dolle and Struise. Had the best prices I noticed in central Brussels, but it’s still pretty expensive. Friendly but not too helpful service, and they spoke good English.
Nice little store with a decent selection of great/good belgian beers and proper glassware.

Was in Brussels today, and visited this shop, while hoping to find some beers that I’m looking for. None of them i found, but i found a couple of other interesting beers. So bought some. Small shop, lots of beers, almost all Belgian. A really wide selection, but the prices are a bit high. Ofcourse, it’s around a tourist-place...Can’t say a lot about "service", they just let me pay, and that’s it. Some kind of foam around the bottles to protect them, but the plastic sac was ridiculous bad quality. Also some "gadgets" inside the shop. It’s for sure ok to pay it a visite if you are around. Loved the compact, but well filled store :)
Yes, it’s touristy, but when I’ve approached the counter with a bunch of items the staff seemed to approve of, they were very friendly and even gave me a discount. Excellent selection, even a little "grey market" Westvleteren.
Nice selection, although not too many rarities. Still some good finds on the shelves if you have the time. Glassware, clothing and decor are worth checking out. Service is good, staff was helpful, even when asked about the location to the competition, so props for that. Prices are just a tad high, but it’s touristy based, so understandable. Recommended.
Really good store for tourist - belgophilian beer enthusiasts..Stuffed with a lot of belgian beers, really hard to decide what do you really want from the shelves...And they have posters, coasters, proper glassware(hundreds and hundreds glasses!!!!), t-shirts and many beer-gadgets. Friendly stuff. I liked this store.

Nice selection of Belgian beers and nice layout. Good location, just off the Grand Place. Just that it is a real tourist place and that the prices are very high. Noticed they sell the Westy 8 for 8 Euros.
Very central location, close to the Grand Place. Great selection of Belgian beers. Friendly staff although the shop was full of tourists.
Westy 8 did cost 8 EUR, the small bottles did cost 2,50 in most cases.
They sold not only beer, the shop was full glassware, openers, shirts and other things.
Visited in October 2009.
Around the corner from the Grote Markt. This is without a doubt a tourist trap. It is worth however checking out the selection which is amazing, especially if you are not familiar with Belgium beer. Check out what they have and find it somewhere else for a cheaper price - i.e. the store is a great a reference. The prices are unbelievably expensive (Euro versus Dollar). The have Westvleteren, but with a price. You are better off checking out a supermarket outside the city center.

Was it that I came in upon rising after a long night of beer, or was the selection actually somewhat lacking? Not that they didn’t have some amazing beers, but it seemed the selection had a lot of "holes" in it. (and the help the day I was there was close to nasty)
